Jade is our passion
Our family started mining jade over 40 years and four generations ago. The community of Jade City started in 1985 with Steve, creating a destination where anyone and everyone was welcome. Steve had his daughters working in his store learning the retail and jade mine business but left the tourism segment in 1992 when Cassiar, the asbestos mine and town shut down leaving little local support in the area.
In 2001, Claudia, Steve's eldest daughter, and her husband Robin, brought their family back to Jade City and continued the jade fever. Claudia and Robin, with the help of their three children, family and close friends continued to share their passion for all things jade, mining the stone, designing products and building a world renowned tourism destination.
In 2014 the family began the creation of an award nominated t.v. show, Jade Fever, on Discovery Canada which just finished airing the 5th season in spring of 2019.
